A jazz band from Queensland ("unsigned" sniff some commentators, as if bands don't actually exist before they have a record deal) have forced Jack White to change the name of The Raconteurs to the equally poor Saboteurs when doing business in Australia.

So, no room for confusion there, then.

There's a statement:

"The Raconteurs name was already taken by a jazz band, to make things easier, and in the spirit of espionage and subversion, we have decided to become The Saboteurs in Australia only."

Surely the jazz band have been more subversive here?
